I'm trying to model a strawberry. I want to assign the color orange to the achenes of the fruit, but I can't start selecting the vertices one after the other as it could be time-consuming. Is there any trick to how I can select them all?

  • $\begingroup$ You had no luck with selection functions from the "select similar" command like face sets, amount of connecting edges...? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you mean by "achene", but try selecting one group of vertices and then use the Select > Select all by Trait > Faces by Sides menu. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Carlo I'm returning to using Blender, so I can't quite remember most functions anymore. How do I go about the "select similar" command? $\endgroup$ Feb 27, 2023 at 19:31
  • $\begingroup$ @JohnEason Like the pimples on the body; the pointy pointy extruding circles. Alright I'll try it.👍 $\endgroup$ Feb 27, 2023 at 19:32
  • $\begingroup$ You can follow the answer below to acces the "select similar menu". I think you should be able to find a selection pattern that suits your case. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1

  1. Select one of the areas that you want to change.
  2. Press Shift+G and choose Area.

That selects all faces with a similar area as the active one. In the lower left part of the viewport, you'll see options for the selection method, where you can adjust the threshold.
